#introductions - I'm Stuart. Much better at listening quietly than posting.
Sometimes I half-write weird and wonderful games which require my brain in order to play.
I would love to own a dinosaur but I probably wouldn't be a responsible owner...
So I've spruced up "Best of F#iends" - my attempt to create a stripped down game for messy teen dramas (think CW network, Veronica Mars, Pretty Little Liars &c.) to have a little more going on - if you're interested, you can grab it here: http://bit.ly/bestoffiends
The new Indie RPG Pipeline is live!

Through the Pipeline, I look to help spread the word of new indie tabletop roleplaying games being released and going into crowdfunding. You can follow by blog, rss feed or by daily email digest.
Whilst on vacation a couple of weeks ago I had thoughts on several game projects:
- A cosy mystery game starring a Romance Author (which I mentioned earlier)
- Apocalypse Coffee - a game which balances working in a coffee shop, life and preventing the end of the world
- A "B Side" game to "Gracie & the Sunbeams" about what happens when you're no longer famous
- A collection of mini/solo games and tweaks to existing projects
How do people feel about strange one-shot PbtA fantasy games set in I-can't-believe-it-isn't-the-18th-Century? Ones with odd Magic systems (totally not cribbed from elsewhere)? How do people feel about four of them linked in strange/fun ways? Find 'em here: http://bit.ly/SACRPG_Marked
Let's imagine for a moment, a Cottage, once in the shadows of the woods, now in suburbia.
In this cottage live three Sisters (because it's always three) - Sister Moon & Stars, Sister Wind and Sister Darkness.
Petitioners come from all over to ask advice and favours of them and they each according to their own bans and strictures answer in their way.
Who might visit them? And what might they ask of these Women - ancient and powerful?
Hey! You like Off-brand Shadowrun right? How about a micro-rpg which pushes the elements of the cyberpunk future that I love:
Questions are framed such as:
"War - The Legions march onwards, the direction irrelevant compared to who commands them, what their fortunes are and how you are required to support them."
Hopefully, this will help position the family rivalries in a larger context and paint a situation beyond the control of any of the characters...
